|Author:||Graeme W. Ferguson|
Sport and the Construction of Gender Given that, as a nation , we often define ourselves through sport, it is appropriate to ask what role sport plays in the developmentof gender amongst our young. This book explores how a group of students interpret themselves through their involvement in sport, and how sport influences their ideas of what it means to be male and female in New Zealand today. The students reveal how sport contributes to their sense of purpose, achievement and identity.
